DURHAM, N.C. - As Duke prepares for the postseason, Blue Devil Network and GoDuke.com will count down the top plays from the first 12 games of the 2015 season. The site will feature one highlight per day with the top play revealed on Saturday, December 26 when the Blue Devils (7-5) participate in the program’s fourth consecutive bowl game, meeting Indiana (6-6) in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
 
The No. 3 play of the season came against Miami when redshirt junior running back Jela Duncan bowled through the Hurricane defenders and into the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown. The Blue Devils trailed 14-3 at the half before Duncan plowed into the end zone and cut the Miami lead to 14-10 on Duke’s opening possession of the third quarter to begin the comeback.
 
Duncan tallied 351 rushing yards this season on 54 carries to post a team-best 6.50 yards per carry average. He also scored four touchdowns, including two at Army West Point. Duncan added 10 catches for 85 yards out of the backfield.
